SAA crew in hot water over drug haul

According to the BBC Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs is questioning 15 crew members of an SAA flight at Heathrow airport. The reason: A drug haul of 50kg of cannabis and 4kg of cocaine. Whoever the one or several person(s) are, that is involved in the smuggling, definitely needs to be nominated for a Darwin award in 2009.

The drugs were discovered at a customs checkpoint on Tuesday. Now in my travel and customs experience, I would not have picked Heathrow to bring the contraband through. But maybe its just me being efficient in forward thinking. Maybe its just because I am a law abiding citizen, but I will also not try and walk through Heathrow with (what customs value at) £310,000 worth of illegal substances.

The next question that has to be asked, is why do they get to take 50+kg's of luggage when they only stay at their destination for a few days and only get a disgraceful 20+kg's allowance when I go on holiday for several weeks.

All that is left to be said is: You bloody numbnut(s).

Also, how come SAA flight crews' bags actually go to the same places as them?

Last time I flew SAA (CPT -> George), my bags decided to stay in CPT and come by road the next day.

My take on things...
